Dining out at the best cafes and bistros.
Stroud is easily the prettiest historic town in NSW in a valley that reminded the early settlers of English Gloucestershire. You'll also find exceptionally good food to match those gorgeous views, here are just a few suggestions to tempt your tastebuds the next time you dine out in Stroud.
Billy T Cafe, Stroud
Offering a new take on ‘absolutely delicious’, the great coffee and food here gets everyone hooked, with daily specials to inspire your food journey: laksa, corn and bean fritters, vegan Buddha bowl, Dutch baby pancakes and those irresistible date scones with rhubarb berry compote. Hot tip: crispy Massaman spiced spring rolls followed by sticky toffee almond slice.
An old fashioned milk bar serving food that’s never out of fashion because it’s fresh and generous… like your mum probably made. The burgers (yes, with beetroot), pizzas and ice cream scoops are piled high and the shelves of lollies in old fashioned glass jars makes every kids’ eyes light up.
The Koffee Run, Booral
The owner loves cooking, chatting and coffee so you know you’ve hit the jackpot of deliciousness. They serve great coffee, homemade cakes and slices plus goodies for breakfast and lunch. Does a triple choc fudge cake or lemon meringue pie count as lunch? (Answer is always yes.)
Three Birdies, Stroud
Golf club bistros should all be this good, with mountain views across the fairways and delicious specials to tempt you. In the cooler months try their famous lamb shank pot pie, or the soft taco board with grilled rump steak or crispy chicken is big enough to share (or not). There's always a difficult choice for dessert from their large selection but go for a tart: either the lemon and passionfruit tart or the caramel meringue tart will do nicely.
The Farmers Wife Distillery, Allworth
Their multi award-winning gin is enough reason to visit but you’ll also love the bistro food for breakfast or lunch to accompany your tasting session. The smoky house beans with ham hock make a great weekend brekkie with your coffee. But for gin flight tastings with your besties, try the share plates: arancini, farmhouse pizza, prosciutto wrapped chicken ballotine, swordfish steak with rocket pesto plus more!
Sometimes you just need the right food, quick and easy, to eat on the run or in the park: sandwiches, pies, fish & chips, pizza, or your favourite Chinese cuisine. Here are some more great choices around Stroud:
